Two Bury St Edmunds families featured on Channel 4's Changing Rooms last night - but what did they think of their new-look homes?

Presenters Anna Richardson and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen came to Suffolk for Wednesday's show, which was the last episode in the series.

It featured insurance broker Leanna and mechanic and firefighter Jamie, who said their living room had "decorative deadlock", and nightclub owner Donna, who was hoping to have her bedroom revamped.

The homeowners switched properties and let Laurence and designers Russell Whitehead and Jordan Cluroe get to work on giving the rooms a fresh lease of life.

And she was not let down by the decorators, who painted the walls, put up new curtains and installed a circular bed - all in bright pink.
